    My family is staying at the Port Orleans. Will we be able to take advantage of the extra magic hours on the first morning, even though we don't check into the resort until that afternoon? Will we be able to take advantage of free parking that day also?

    Hi Meagan! You and your family will be staying at one of my favorite Disney resorts. I love the ambiance of Port Orleans and I find the location to be one of the best of all moderate resorts.

    To enjoy the park Extra Magic Hours you will need to be registered at your resort. You can certainly do this by heading over to Port Orleans early that morning. The resort front desk is open 24 hours. You can leave all your luggage and any other things you would like to store there versus your car and not worry about a thing. Your room obviously is likely to not be ready unless it was not occupied the night before but they will text you the room number when it does become available. That way you can spend as much time in the parks and will know the minute you can get back to the resort to unpack and enjoy the resort amenities.

    Once you register, no matter how early in the day it is, you will enjoy all the perks of staying on Disney property. That will include free parking in the parks and the Extra Magic Hours. Have a wonderful vacation at Walt Disney World!
